The Chem Club was voted ``Organization of the Year`` by PLU's Clubs and Orgs.
We’d like to congratulate our Chem Club and Chem Club officers – Luna Kim, Emily Ness, Cole Fisher, Kasey Johnson, and Alex Klussmann – for their excellent leadership and organization resulting in a truly remarkable year. This week, the Chemistry Club was awarded “Organization of the Year” by PLU’s Clubs and Org!
The 2018-19 academic year was packed with activities, such as multiple trivia nights in the STEM wing, Chemistry Olympics, outreach to a 5th grade class, hosting an invited speaker (Saskia VanBergen), participating the Celebration of Light, hosting a summer research panel, and of course all of the club’s support of and help with Mole Day Eve, Desserts & Demos, and a new Green Chem Demo night, just to name a few.
The Chem Club’s actions and activities last year were recognized at the ACS National Meeting in Orlando, FL, as the club received a “Commendable” status and the “Green Chemistry Award” from the ACS. The Chemistry Department, Natural Sciences Division, and PLU are truly fortunate to have such motivated and ambitious club officers and active members. Thank you for your service, dedication, and passion!
